1. Be sure to hire an experienced attorney
Unfortunately, there’s several common mistakes that we see people make over and over again after they’ve been injured in a motorcycle accident in Orlando. One of the main mistakes we see people make after they’ve been injured in a motorcycle accident is fail to hire the right attorney. It’s very important, if you’ve been involved in a motorcycle accident, that you hire the right lawyer, an attorney that has experience in motorcycle accidents, that has experience representing people injured in motorcycle accidents, and that’s not afraid to take a motorcycle case to trial.
2. Seek medical treatment immediately
Another common mistake we see people make is failing to seek medical treatment right away. It’s very important that you go see a doctor, if you’ve been in a motorcycle accident, for many reasons. One, to document the nature and extent of your injuries, and two, to give yourself peace of mind so you know what is going on with you and can get on the road to recovery.
3. Keep your motorcycle!
Another common mistake we see people make in motorcycle accidents is failing to keep their motorcycle. It’s very important that the motorcycle is kept after an accident because that can be a key piece of evidence in presenting your case. That’s why it’s important to hire a lawyer right away to ensure that that key evidence is kept.
4. Do not speak to the insurance company
The last common mistake we see people make after a motorcycle accident is speaking to the insurance company for the at-fault person. It’s very important that you do not speak to the insurance company for the person that injured you or the company that injured you prior to hiring a lawyer. Oftentimes, they’re trying to get a quick settlement, settle your case for pennies on the dollar, and take a recorded statement that can be used against you later. It’s very, very important that you do not do that.
